Gastric Bypass
The size of the stomach is reduced and an intestine is made a bypass in this method. The food consumed goes down directly from this intestine. This method is very beneficial in the persons suffering from diabetes and obesity.
It is a procedure, which is both restrictive and malabsorptive. In this procedure, stapling creates a small stomach pouch (15-20 ml), this forms the restrictive element. The outlet from this newly formed pouch empties directly into the lower portion of the small intestine, thus bypassing a certain length of the intestine. This forms the malabsorptive element, as no absorption occurs in the segment of the intestine bypassed. This surgery is more effective in inducing weight loss. It has other major advantages like significant improvements and even cure of diseases like diabetes mellitus, hypertension and metabolic syndrome.
